Is Wenger still the right man for the job?

  1. Yes

  2. No

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    I realise it is a saying. Used the figurative sense to add a little humour. Being the stiff grammar Nazi you are though, I should have known better.

    How can you compare the PL era vs the non-PL era? You just simply can't.

    The PL era saw the dawn of huge cash inflow into the league with the already established 'big clubs' the biggest benefactors. Money dictates we shouldn't be finishing anywhere near the likes of Burnley ffs.

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    Try reading the rst of the thread GZ. We've progressed somewhat.

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    Well, was mine orginally but now we're on the same page I can say I agree. Your point isn't one I considered originally and I must say that I have before considered the PL very different to that which was the league before.

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    Bizarre should be banned from this forum.:mad:

    Am I the only one who feels left out and a little jealous when you look at all the other clubs with their champions league football and exciting players and managers with a plan.

    I thought I would be ok with us in the Europa for a season on the condition that the season would go well and we would be at least comparing to the big boys in the league.

    Spurs are playing Juventus tonight. F*ck1ng Spurs are playing one of the worlds iconic clubs in front of a huge crowd and will probably go through.

    F*ck that.

    I will forever love Arséne Wenger for his achievements at the club, especially during the first half of his tenure. However, I often hear fans lauding the fact that he single handedly made Arsenal the global figure it is today.

    Well no, the reality is that TV (Sky) made Arsenal the global figure it is today. Without Sky, people across the world would not have been able to watch the likes of Henry, Vieira, Pires, Bergkamp dominate English football like it hadn't been before.

    Obviously Arséne had a huge influence too but I think it needs to be said that without Sky, none of what we have now would be possible.

    I also happen to think that clowns like Graeme Souness saying that he would keep 3/4 players from our current squad is way wide of the mark. Thats the same guy who set Liverpool back years and made a hash of things everywhere else.

    I'm convinced that Allegri and either of his current goalkeepers alone would improve us hugely. Add to that a new contract and the armband for Ramsey and we are back

    We can all have our opinions on who should stay or go but our first 11 are nearly all top end players (bar Mustafi) with some quality in the back ups. Kolasinac for example made the Bundesliga team of the year before he arrived, he is not bad.

    Sky gave somewhat equal access to top teams. In my country it is all Liverpool and United and in my early years my uncles tried to get me and my brother to support Liverpool with endless Liverpool kits gifts but it was Wenger and his early teams that made me support them.

    Sky... Arsenal games back then was maybe showed 1-2 per month here while Liverpool and United got all the attention.

  13. Geez, you are one boring, humourless & embarrassing excuse for a wenger sycophant. Still wrong on dictator too! If only he knew you had his back, he'd resign tomorrow...

    I don't have Wenger's back, I think he should leave. I just happen to think he isn't a dictator.

    Well Arsenal will be playing at the San Siro tomorrow against one of the worlds iconic clubs in AC Milan. So the fact that Tottnham are playing Juventus is not bothering me that much.

    ^ This though makes me angry and sad. The fact that Tottenham can actually beat a top level European club when we are looking at (possibly) getting humbled by Milan tomorrow, tells its own sorry tale.

    Arsenal Football Club has never EVER been irrelevant in England, or even an 'irrelevant speck on the football landscape'. When Arsenal Wenger arrived here, we had more titles than Man Utd ffs. I think it's you who needs to look at a bit of our history lad.
